not be specific to one disease or organ system but could benefit everything, new ways of doing science. since i came out of the genoa genome project, always looking for examples like that. that is a great and wonderful, exciting thing to be able to do, to be able to try to steer this massive ship in a direction that will have the greatest public benefit in the shortest time. >> two years ago, i did interview with christopher hitchens. it may have been close to his last. he died later. i want to run this clip. [video clip] collins, who did the human genome project, and who under budget, we are on opposite sides of the religious debate. we became friends. we became friendly debaters, and he has taken a very kindly interest in my case and has helped me have my genome sequenced to look for a more perfect, identifiable match for a mutation that is peculiar to me. >> how did you become friends? >> as christopher said, we started out as debating about the topic of science and faith. are these world views compatible? for me, they are. as a believer, the opportunity to do science and see god's hands in

. it is not rocket science. it is simple stuff. this is something that -- you talk to manufacturing, manufacturers and it is the number one issue you here. there's a frustration, because the manufacturing community knows we are on the verge of michigan, on the verge of doing something special, but in order to get there, skilled workforce and the innovative work force, productive work force is going to meet the short-term challenges and put their as we think about this, the skills issue is about a short- term fit to a critical problem. but then it is about long-term solutions. if we can get to a place where we have right, innovative, productive, well-trained and educated people in the workforce, that will set manufacturing to continue to compete and grow. this all links together. hopefulething we are we will see move in the coming weeks and months in the senate. we will continue to work with you and try to be a supportive as we can. i look forward to the discussion. >> thank you. >> it is great to be here with you, senator. as i think about the skills gap , i think about science, technology, and ge

believe in science. you often hear the left lecture on science. we are on the side of science. anybody who ignores the obvious point that if you expend more energy than you bring in, you die, whether a business, person, or country. the person who ignores that is against science. in the long run, a country that spends more than it raises cannot continue. it is an existential threat to our country. that was established by economist after economist. common sense confirms it. the federal debt, there's a bigger problem. >> let me quote dick cheney, who said ronald reagan taught us that deficits do not matter. dick cheney was wrong. he was wrong then and now. of course deficits matter, but any one of you who supported the bush plans has no right to speak. i helped bill clinton balance the budget and build a surplus. why? because we had good economic times. in good economic times, you pay down the deficit, but reagan and bush did not, and in bad you have to stimulate in the near term, as thank god president obama is doing. we democrats will balance the budget once again. >> paul, which is more im
kids' education, science and research. they also cut medicaid which affects a lot of those seniors on medicare, about 20% of those seniors are also on medicaid. but it's at the end of that 10-year window that our republican colleagues then move to their voucher plan, premium support, i don't care what you call it. the only way you're going to achieve any savings compared to the baseline numbers, c.b.o. baseline that the chairman showed you, the only way you're going to do it is if you're capping the amount you're going to get so that seniors have to eat the costs and take the risks of rising health care. now, there's a better way to address that issue and that is the way we approach it in our budget and that is to build on the kind of reforms that we made in the affordable care act, in obamacare, which have helped and contributed to reducing the rapid rise in per capita health care costs and which as i pointed out earlier our republican colleagues included in their own budget. so, yes, we have to deal with these drivers of costs, including health care. but the way we propose to do
. thompson: mr. speaker, science is beginning to prevail in the debate over america's natural gas revolution and it's time to begin telling the real story what it means for all americans. just seven years ago america was facing the fact that we would have to import an increasing amount of natural gas to fulfill our domestic demand. today new technologies have enabled us to access previously inaccessible energy resources, and almost overnight america's energy resource picture flipped from deficit to surplus. in the past five years we've become stronger as a nation through the developed of these god-given resources. as a result we are more competitive. from low income to the high tax brackets, everyone is benefiting. the future's bright but only if we educate the half truths and begin telling the real story of america's natural gas revolution. the stories about technology, private sector innovation, investment, financial risk, thousands of new jobs, new competition, new growth, a growing and better standard of living for more americans, lower energy costs, new industries, a revitalized energy

, that partnership has created new products and medical treatments and pushing new frontiers of science and exploration. that is the kind of relationship israel should have and could have with every country in the world. we see how that innovation could reshape this region. there is a program in jerusalem that brings together young israelis and palestinians to learn vital skills in technology and business. and in israeli and palestinian have joined together to begin a start. it speaks to the talent and entrepreneurial spirit. one of the great ironies of what is happening in the broader region is that so much of what people are yearning for -- education, entrepreneurship, the ability to start a business, the ability to connect to the club theomy, -- connect to global economy, those are things that can be found right here in israel. they should be a hub for thriving regional trade and an [applause] forel is a center innovation that helps power the global economy. all of the potential for prosperity can be enhanced with greater security. enhanced with lasting peace.

-woman, anti-science, anti- gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on. many voters are simply unwilling to choose our candidate, even though they share our core beliefs, because those voters feel unloved, unwanted, and unwelcome in our party. tonight, my thought is this. if watson can learn from its past mistakes, so can we. this means that we must move beyond the devices and issues that currently define the publicnever again, never again can the republican party simply write off entire segment of our society because we assume our principles have limited appeal. they have broad appeal. [applause] they have broad appeal. we need to be larger than that. we are exactly the same reason that millions of immigrants were drawn from our shores from every nation, we need to draw into our party people from every corner of society, because conservative principles and not liberal dogma best reflect the ideals that made this nation great. we must be united in the principle that everyone should be given the opportunity to rise to the top, to raise a family, and to be free read our core principles, gr
education, job training, health care and advanced science and research. even with these investments, our budget is projected to reduce the deficit by approximately $2.8 trillion over the decade compared to the c.b.o.'s baseline which incidentally does not include the savings that we will achieve through the winding down of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. that will put us on a sustainable goal and more than meets the the goal. so we feel that is a responsible goal. now this number is pessimistic, because with the jobs bill, we think we are going to do a lot better because of the similar effect it has on the economy. this is in stark contrast to the committee report, which has vague numbers, numbers that don't add up or don't give you a clue as to where they're going to get the money. the budget has a reduction in tax rates. does not say how you are going to make that revenue neutral, where you are going to assign the $5 trillion in taxes to make it revenue neutral. they block grant medicaid. by the time the end of 10 years, it's one-third of where it needs to be to maintain benefits. 2/
ago the national institute of science reported that for every $1 spent on $1 spent on various mitigation efforts we can save four dollars in costs. we must assure that mitigation policies are thoroughly incorporated in this effort. this is especially important if climate change drives the sea levels to rise and increases the severity of coastal storms. by working to get there we can rebuild and become stronger. by protecting ourselves from pitch for big by protecting ourselves from future storms. we cannot ignore what many experts believe is the under, it is the underlying cause. -- believe is the underlying cause of hurricane sandy. be making a mistake if we did not also think about what we need to do to address the symptoms of climate change but the core problem itself. i look forward to working with all of you in the obama administration on this critical task we have before us. i will turn it over for comments. >> let me apologize. i have to go to the ford to object to the lack of amendments that are being made available on the continuing resolution. i will not be able to h
year appropriations bills to h.r. 33. the ones for homeland security, commerce, just t. and science, and agriculture. mr. speaker, these were the bills that passed the house by large margins with bipartisan backing. and are now by the senate reinserted into the c.r. for the balance of the year. and it pleases this member and this chairman that those bills were picked up and certified into the c.r. that we are passing today. this funding will support critical law enforcement agencies, protect our nation's borders and food supplies, and provide important agriculture and rural development investments. we have ensured that critical government services like food and nutrition assistance programs remain available to those who need them most. these updated spending and funding levels will help keep our economy on the path toward recovery, supporting u.s. trade manufacturing, and job creation. in the other departments and agencies covered by the bill, both the house and senate made limited technical changes where absolutely necessary to prevent extensive waste of taxpayer dollars and to avo

of marriage institutions to me is not a science. it is not a cultural science. it is hypocrisy. the way you that you're saying if marriage social goal is to create more human beings, and why do we even let people who do not conceive of be married? you are not even let him be a bull or homosexual people to be married. ask them why we can help society? thing is the way your saturdays in our society duse just a man and women can get married to me it is the same not to a segregated society. based on what? are social goal of marriage is to reproduce -out- social a marriage history -- social goal is for marriage to reproduce? >> the time is up. we really need to get this down. to speak as to try quickly as possible. i have a lot of sympathy for mr. for letting it take its course. how deep into people who say this is taking too long and all of the gay couples in states where they did not have these rights, how you answer that/ what is your response to that? it is an anthropology that all social scientists recognize, people on the left, and this is not something i have come up with. this is the con

economy through education, job training, health care, and science and resedge. i yield myself an additional 30 seconds. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. mr. scott: even with these additional investments, this is needed to put our economy back on a sustainable path because it's more than the simpson-bowles deficit reduction 10-year goal. the c.b.c. budget shows we can create jobs, invest in education, transportation, and research and avoid devastating health care cuts and achieve the 10-year simpson-bowles deficit reduction goal and i urge my colleagues to support the congressional black caucus budget. i reserve the balance of my time. the chair: for what purpose does the gentleman from georgia rise? >> i claim the time in opposition. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. mr. broun: i want to comment my -- commend my friend mr. scott for bringing forward a budget on behalf of the congressional black caucus. i think it's important we have all sorts of options here on the floor to be able to discuss, i would note a couple of items that he conveniently left out, one is th
in science and research and education, it more . an doubles the sequester cut it violates important commitments we've made to our seniors. it reopens the prescription drug doughnut hole so seniors with high health care costs will pay thousands more during the period of this budget. it turns medicare into a voucher program so seniors face the risk of rising health care costs. and finally, mr. chairman, it's based on this false idea that you can claim to balance the budget in 10 years when you claim also to be getting rid of obamacare when all they do is get rid of the benefits of obamacare. this reached the time of balance because they keep the affordable care act, obamacare. i urge my colleagues to reject this approach and to adopt the balanced democratic approach to dealing with these national challenges. the chair: the time of the gentleman has expired. the gentleman from wisconsin is recognized for 3 1/2 minutes. mr. ryan: i yield myself such time as i may consume. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. mr. ryan: mr. chairman, this budget is constructive. it reveals each side's
believe in science and in evidence, and i do not think there is any scientific evidence that says that we should have such a public policy that tries to do what you have described that bill is doing in new jersey. i do not know the exact bill, but clyde conversion -- >> conversion therapy. >> i do not know what the evidence is, but i know it is disrespectful, and discriminatory, and therefore, i would oppose the conversion therapy and support the bill as we have in california. again, i have not seen that particular bill. s in the bill says there is a ban on conversion therapy. what is the point? what is the point? what is the point? i think it is stale. i think under people understand we talk about respect for all of god's children, not wanting to be discriminatory in any respect, that that really has the place, and it certainly does not. would that be in the schools? are they doing it in the schools are taking people side -- >> i am not sure, but i was wondering more broadly what you think, because these are being proposed. >> what is their purpose? we have been through this. when i came

' education. those are our investments in science and research to help power our economy. those are our investments to help modernize our infrastructure. they cut transportation by 15% when we have 15% unemployment in the construction industry. so mr. chairman, the american people rejected the kind of uncompromising lopsided approach that we see once again presented here in the house. the same thing we've seen for the last three years as if we hadn't even had a debate last fall. now, in the democratic alternative, we focus on the main issue right now and in the future. we don't only want strong economic growth in the future, we want to see accelerated job growth right now. you know, we've seen some momentum in the jobs market in the last couple months. but the republican budget, it will put the brakes on that growth. now, the chairman of the budget committee can quote what economists all he wants and there are economists that say it will do this or won't do this or will do that, but we have an empire in the congress, we have a refugee. they are called the congressional budget office. th
